Unison delegates mask up for the Robin Hood Tax, along with Billy Bragg

17 Jun 2010, By

Two thousand Unison conference delegates arrived at this morning’s session to find a green mask on their chairs – and the result was a massive demonstration of support for the Robin Hood Tax, which Unison claim would help prevent damaging cuts in public services. Musician and political campaigner Billy Bragg masked up too, explaining the purpose of the campaign to delegates. Unison set out how the Robin Hood Tax and other measures could prevent the cuts that next week’s Budget is predicted to include – and the union urged members to put pressure on the Chancellor by signing up for the Robin Hood Tax campaign e-action.
